BET and Centric will simulcast sister Viacom-owned network Tv Land’s live episode telecast of The Soul Man, the network announced Thursday.
TV Land’s live, season three premiere episode of The Soul Man -- starring Cedric The Entertainer as a soul singer turned preacher -- will air on March 26, immediately after the network’s live telecast of the fifth season premiere episode of Hot In Cleveland, said network officials.
Beginning April 5, Centric will air new episodes from the third season of The Soul Man 10 days after their premiere on TV Land. In addition, the network will air marathons of the first two seasons beginning April 5, said the network.
"We are so proud of The Soul Man and its appeal to all audiences," said Larry W. Jones, President, TV Land in a statement. "BET has been a fantastic partner on this series and with Centric now coming on board, we're thrilled that even more viewers will have the opportunity to see the show across multiple Viacom properties.”
